The theme for the gallery this week is black and white. When you look at this photograph what do you see?
When I look at this photo, I see my wonderful, precious and very lucky eldest child, who had only days before been in intensive care fighting for his life.
I think it is time that we all realised that this life is never black or white, but filled with all sorts of beautiful colours and until we walk a mile in someones shoes we have no right to judge them or their decisions.
I have this image on my sitting room wall and it reminds me that life is precious and worth living to the full.
OMG! Jen, the stuff you and your family have had to endure ! You are truly an inspiration. A gorgeous pic of Maxi by the way xxxx
A beautiful image – and sentiments to match x
He looks so happy and healthy in that photo, you’d never guess. Lovely photo of Maxi x
You are so right. I can imagine that colour flowing back in to your lives.
Lovely photo. You’d never have believed he had been so poorly.
Such a fantastic picture, both in colour and in black and white. I’m so glad that he was able to recover to fill your lives with so much more colour

You wools never guess that he had only jest come out of intensive care – what a little trooper. Gorgeous photo of him and such a special reminder of what you went through. Like you say, life certainly is. It as si plea as black or white is it? Lovely post xx
It is a beautiful photo.
I think we could all learn a lesson from your post. Nothing is ever black and white. I am a terrible one for jumping to conclusions and often need to take a step back. Thank you for reminding me of that!
Beautiful image, beautiful post. I have many images that define exactly the same thing.
You are so right, as always, wise lady. That is a beautiful photo, sometimes we do need to stop and say ‘thanks’ don’t we? x
Even without the back story that is a beautiful picture. With it the picture is even more special
Loving the new look btw – very swish!
What a gorgeous smile!
Such a though provoking post!
Lovely picture of Maxi, glad all was well with him!
Awwww, how lovely and so true! Gorgeous photo as well.
PS And, no I’m not telling! LOL Just kidding! On my wordpress, I just load all the photos I want to use, click on gallery and choose insert slideshow. I’m sure it should be similar on yours. Good luck!
Knowing what happened just before this was taken makes it all the more joyful 🙂 Lovely photo, both ways. Jen
